New samson post ….

July 27, 2020

In August 2018 the samson post was thought to be repairable ( refer to post dated 20/8/2018 ) but it has been replaced. The new samson post  – the large unpainted vertical timber  piece  –  has been constructed and installed. A feature of a sansom post is that it is visible above the deck but extends through all decks to the keelson. This creates the maximum strength for the post which can be used for handling anchors, mooring lines or a tow rope. Thanks to Peter Harris for the update and photo.
